       I am a very dizzy person. Whether I am riding on roller coasters or just on a merry go round, getting dizzy comes really easy to me. One year I had gone to King’s Island with Annie, my friend. The trip was super fun, the car ride there was pleasant and we ended up going onto the first roller coaster we saw. This roller coaster was blue and not as large as some of the others, but this roller coaster still made me dizzy. By the end of the day, I was a ball of sickness. I had thrown up multiple times but pushed myself to keep going and enjoy the time. I push myself to try and look past the dizziness which is exactly what I had done this summer.

 

   During the summer a friend of mine, Alex, had taken me boating in Monticello as a fun bonding trip. I knew that I would have a hard time with the motions of the boat and all the twists and turns that I would endure, but I was so committed to spending time with him that I pushed myself to suck it up and go boating. The drive to the lake wasn’t long at all; I believe that I kept myself well distracted by all the green trees surrounding us on beautiful, long roads. When we did arrive to the lake, I was so excited to get a nice sunburn to turn my pasty skin into a golden chicken nugget–one of my summer goals.

 

          I had been so scared to step onto the boat, but I had also been so excited that I didn’t care if I fell in. So I took a risk and just jumped onto the boat with Alex and his family. When the boat swayed side to side, that’s when I got very scared and sat down quickly. I did not mention that I was scared or feeling nervous due to not wanting to look like a baby in front of a bunch of people I was not quite familiar with. I was there to have fun and spend time with Alex so I stayed quiet and listened to them all talk about going tubing and I was very happy to hear Alex’s mom say that there were too many people out to go tubing. Being on the boat was scary enough, and I was not about to go tubing and upset my stomach even more. I also did not have an appetite; I was afraid that all of the food I consumed would come right back up with just a turn of the boat. I remember that I was asked if I was just embarrassed to eat around Alex and his family, but I wasn’t. I just did not want to get too sick on a boat and have to sit out while everyone went swimming. Eventually,  after swimming for countless hours, I ended up eating some packs of crackers to help settle my stomach.

My boating experience was quite the thrill. I enjoyed watching others on jet skis and boating with their families while I relaxed with the sun beating on my back. The only issue I had was with the wind on the boat and keeping my hair under control. Keeping my frizzy curls in control is hard enough without the wind. Alex’s sister had given me some detangler spray that did help my hair chill a bit. The heat of the day did not help my hair ether, but that’s okay because I did end up going home with a light sunburn that later turned into a tan.

We swam so much that day that when I got home, I was so tired my eyes hurt from rubbing them so often. The trip of feeling dizzy and having messy hair was well worth the time spent with my friend. During the summer I like to keep busy and try to hang out with as many friends as possible. Spending a day with Alex was worth being dizzy just like spending a day with Annie at Kings Island.

    I like how you pushed through the trip to King’s Island in order to have fun with your friend. I realize how easy it is to become dizzy in certain situations so I share your pain. I too get dizzy every once in a while, and it is quite frustrating. Great Story!

    It sounds like your boating experience went well for not feeling too well. Being dizzy is definitely not the most favorite thing to experience. Hopefully your body grows out of being dizzy. Great article!

    I loved how you talked about your fun experiences this summer. Being dizzy is not real fun for anyone. I liked how you talked about the feeling I think everyone gets around new people. All and all a great article!

    I liked your article. I’m proud of you for doing soomething you were nervous to do! I’m also glad that you ended up having fun just like we did at Kings Island.
